Violence in U.S. Public Schools: 2000 School Survey on Crime and Safety - This report contains a wealth of data on reported incidences of violence in U.S. public schools during the 1999-2000 school year. Information examined includes overall incidents of violence in public schools and the relationship between school characteristics and violence and serious violence. Selected findings: 71% of schools reported at least one violent incident, and 20% reported one or more serious violent incidents; as enrollment size increased, schools were more likely to report one or more violent or serious violent incidents; as the percentage of students who considered academics important increased, the likelihood of schools reporting a violent or serious violent incident decreased; and 7% of schools accounted for 50% of reported total violent incidents.
